Brett Butcher is again taking up the CEO role at the Langham Hospitality Group, a position he previously served for five years from 2009 to 2014.

The hospitality veteran left the group in 2014 and returned as CEO of GE Hospitality Asset Management in 2017, a position that he will continue to hold.

“We are delighted to have Brett lead the Langham Hospitality Group portfolio again,” said Dr K.S. Lo, executive chairman of Langham Hospitality Group. “Brett is an experienced hotelier with significant experience in luxury hospitality, and he is ideally suited to lead the company through our Covid-19 recovery phases and implement a solid succession plan for the group.”

No stranger to the team at Langham Hospitality Group, Butcher will provide guidance in the operations of the group’s hotels, spearhead all hotel owner relations, and solicit new management contracts in key destinations around the world.

The Australian national was previously senior vice president of sales, marketing and brand as well as managing director of Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong (now rebranded Cordis, Hong Kong.)

Prior to Langham Hospitality Group, Butcher served in various operational and executive roles for nearly 20 years across the Pacific, North America and China.
